I can assure you that there are a good many people who have decided they don’t like me over the years. I have tried as much as possible, just as the scriptures say, to live at peace with all men. There is no man out there who I have stolen from, I haven’t mistreated anyone, I am an excellent heating and air contractor in So. Cal, all of my customers recommend me. I have a large family, seven children, seven grandchildren and a wife of 32 years, all of these are witnesses to anyone willing to look at the grace, wisdom and blessings of the Lord to me and in my life. Since the day I moved into this area, until now, 46 years have come and gone, I have been AOG, United Pentecostal, Baptist, Calvary Chapel, Vineyard, Foursquare Church, Presbyterian, all of these churches have either kicked me out, some physically, or would have no interest today for me to darkened their door and to be who I am in Christ, as Christ is my only head.
Most people do not stop to realize the significance of the words of Jesus in the following when he said,
(Luk 13:34-35) O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
This is how the it works folk, this is what Jesus was saying, if the Jews would have received him, he would have ushered in the Kingdom of God and the Jews would be ruling and reigning with Christ on the earth today, with Jesus on the throne of David, but instead their kingdom became desolate, as it is today. There are two workings of the Lord I want to point out here, Gathering and Scattering, we will talk more about this later.

Last night as I was meditating on the Lord in my sleep, a thought and concept came to me, and shortly thereafter scriptures started also pouring into my mind, confirming the concept. I believe this is the Lord and his working, so here I sit this morning to speak what the Lord has given me to speak.
The Lord did not speak to his people, the Jews, for 400 years, no word of the Lord came to them, NOTHING! It would appear that God had totally forsaken his people, they had fallen into false teachings, their leaders, the Scribes and Pharisees were corrupt to the core and Jerusalem had become a spiritual type of Babylon, holding the people of God in captivity under the banner of a corrupt religious authority. And almost like a thief in the night, like a snare to come upon the religious establishment, a King was born who would rule and reign on the throne of David. They did not realize it yet, but the Kingdom of God, his rule and reign, had come in the form of a baby boy.
It must have been more than 20 years ago that I got an invitation to attend a small meeting in Anaheim, California. This meeting was a very special meeting of all the most holy men in the world who found it became fashionable to call themselves “Apostles”, so they called the meeting “The Apostles Gathering”. I did not call myself an Apostle, I made that clear, but I have angered quite a few religious men in my life telling them this, I thought my calling was to one day fill the shoes of an Apostle. Well I have gotten wiser, so today I call myself a brother, a follower of Jesus, a servant of the Lord, a spiritual man, but I no longer tell folks that I will be an Apostle at a future date. See the distinction between the two?
Introduction to “The Prophecy of Balaam”
I believe the Lord did this! In the first part of the new year of 2018 I was prompted by the Lord to look deeper into an old prophecy, “The Prophecy of Balaam”. This prophecy had caught my attention because it was apparent that Balaam, a sorcerer, a false prophet and diviner; had received a true astounding prophecy from the Lord. Furthermore, this prophecy was of such significance, even to this day we are still awaiting the final fulfillment of this prophecy. I believe I was led by the Lord to carefully study the details of this prophecy, because I believed there was an important message to the people of God, recorded by Moses, the words of Balaam, as he attempted to curse the children of Israel. This happened thousands of years ago as Israel, because of their unbelief, were close to the end of the forty years of wandering in the wilderness, coming to a time of entering into a land of promise, flowing with milk and honey.
The Prophecy of Balaam is recorded in scriptures from Numbers 22 – 25, the story plays out even to ch. 31, where Balaam is killed by the sword in a battle with the Israelites.
As time winds down and we approach the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, things are occurring to get our attention, one of these things is the expose of the “Deep State”. What once was a conspiracy theory, the idea that our country was being run by unaccountable deep state operatives, forming a shadow government, is now being played out before our eyes. There was a time that we believed the rhetoric of conservative politicians, the Republicans, we thought they really were doing all they could to end the nightmare of the murder of unborn children, we thought they really believed in small government and lower taxes; on the other hand we believed that the Democrats were what they claimed to be, we disagreed with their so called “liberal” policies, but we thought they really believed it.
Now here is what we have folks, two political parties with different rhetoric and talking points, who appear to opposes each other, but with a common goal and interest.
NOW HERE IS WHERE THE RUB BEGINS, BECAUSE THAT COMMON GOAL AND INTEREST IS POWER AND MONEY!
The Lord God was silent for 400 years and then a baby boy was born in a manger, a barn, a place to keep animals. All of the Religious Authorities and scholars of the day, excluding a few wise men from the east, were looking for a King to come and establish the Jewish State, overthrowing all of their enemies, making them the head and not the tail. Jesus Christ was not the image, nor was he the man they were looking for, so eventually they crucified him along side thieves and buried him in a rich man’s grave.
Today we have experienced a silence from the Lord, most people who claim to have heard from God, haven’t, and there is great confusion and separation among the people who claim the Lord as their savior. There is no reason at all to believe that the coming of the Lord is going to be any different from when he came the first time as a baby boy, then when he comes the second time as a thief, judge and conqueror. The Religious Authorities and scholars of our day are no more prepared for what is going to occur, then the Religious Authorities were 2000 years ago!
THIS IS BY DESIGN, this is the way the Lord God conducts these affairs, he hides his truth from the wise in this world and delivers it to babes!
We have a president in the United States that appears to be doing the right thing in a number of areas. We have celebration in the east over moving of our nations embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing the capital of the geopolitical state of Israel. This is not truth that is hidden, all the wise men of this world see it and understand it, all the Religious Authorities are on the bandwagon to cheer our President along. I continue to ask myself the question, what does all this really mean? And what will be the outcome? What is the Lord God, who today is King on the throne of David, he sits on high at the right hand of the Father, what is he about to accomplish with these developments that he has allowed to occur? Is the Lord God finally bringing salvation to America, salvation to the Jewish state? Will Donald Trump drain the swamp, save the Jews and bring in salvation to the rebuilding of a Holy Temple in Jerusalem? That’s what many of the Religious Authorities believe and hope for.
There is something inside of me that continues to say to those who rejoice, “NOT SO FAST Brother!” Something is up, something doesn’t smell right – the purposes of the Lord may just be bringing in something that no one is expecting, something that will turn out much different than sought for by the wise men of this world.
I CONTINUE TO ASK THE QUESTION, WHERE ARE THOSE FEW WISE MEN IN SECLUSION, LIKE THE WISE MEN FROM THE EAST WHO WILL RECOGNIZE THE SIGN OF HIS COMING, JUST LIKE THEY DID 2000 YEARS AGO?
